WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #95, by Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman, Ronda Pattison, Bobby Curnow, Shawn Lee and Dave Wachter, on sale now.
The latest issue of IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has created quite a buzz by adding a new female turtle into the mix. The sold-out Issue #95 concluded with the young Foot Clan member Jennika transforming into turtle form after an emergency blood transfusion performed by Donatello using Leonardo's blood. Now, IDW has published concept art that properly showcases Jennika's turtle form and reveals her new yellow mask.
"Congratulations to the creative team of #TMNT! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #95 is now sold out at the distributor level and going to 2nd print!" IDW tweeted. "Until then, head over to your local comic shop and pick-up your copy…rumor has it there’s a huge cliff hanger!"

Now sporting a cloak and claws, Jennika, the secondary leader to the Foot Clan, was in need of a blood transfusion after being stabbed by a resentful Karai. However, Leonardo's mutant blood caused the human girl to transform, similar to the four ninja brothers.
Since the transformation happened at the end of the issue, Jennika's ninja turtle form hasn't been seen in action yet, and it remains to be seen how the transformation will affect her relationships with the turtle brothers and her love interest, Casey Jones.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #95 is on sale now, with the next issue arriving July 31.
